Helping animals in need

This whale shark was caught in a rope. Two diving Instructors found the animal in distress and decided to help it. The rope was restricting its pectoral fins at the back of its head, the divers tried to cut it. After some maneuvering, the whale shark was freed. After a parting gesture of thanks, it returned to the deep, leaving a lasting souvenir for the divers.

    Okay, if these people are so good at finding these creatures in distress they should just rescue them instead of watching them die and trying to make us feel bad about it. Yes we fish to much but we feed a lot of people with that fish.

    Two cutting attempts seemed futile to start. And why are the knives always seemingly dull? Like a bad dream? Good on them for freeing the animal. Happy ending.
